Post-Sale Update: This Triumph Tiger Daytona Racer quickly sold at the BIN price of $4,995 on eBay.
The 1970 Triumph Tiger, also known as the T100R, was the little brother of the Bonneville. You lost a little horsepower, but the Tiger gave better gas mileage and was easier to tune and start – some though the Tiger was a better all-around bike. But none of that matters with today’s example, which is a Triumph Tiger Daytona Racer with plenty of custom touches that will unfortunately need a little bit of work before it will pass a safety inspection.
The original Tiger had a 490cc twin that was good for 41 horsepower at 7,200 rpm. Top speed was just under 100 and the entire thing weighed 419 pounds. This bike has some excellent additions, including a magnesium Fontana dual drum front brake, which would cost you a staggering $3,251 just for a modern day replica!
This specific Triumph Tiger Daytona Racer also has 35mm Ceriani front forks, a real Tri-cor racing tank, Borrani rims, and dual Dell’orto carbs – all of which is seriously expensive hardware. The seller claims the motor is strong, but I’d budget to rebuild the engine, fix the gauges, and hit the track for some delightful vintage racing.
